Schefter: Eagles Open to Trading Jackson

ESPN’s Adam Schefter fired off a Tweet late yesterday suggesting the Eagles would be open to dealing WR DeSean Jackson. This isn’t exactly a groundbreaking development, rather it confirms what many already suspected.

The news does corroborate with previous rumors that the Eagles will apply the franchise tag on Jackson, and then let the various scenarios and options it presents play out.

“Eagles are open to listening to trade offers for free agent wide receiver DeSean Jackson, who is expected to be franchised,” said Schefter.

While rumors like this are often easy to dismiss, Schefter seems to have the pulse of the Eagles and is one of the more reliable sources around the league.

The market should be strong for the two-time Pro Bowl wide receiver if the Eagles do field offers from other NFL clubs. It’s unknown what the Eagles would seek in terms of compensation, but we’ll know soon enough.
